About

Holes 18
Type Public
Par 72
Length 6770 yards
Slope 129
Rating 72.6

Flanders Valley Golf Course boasts two championship courses that sprawl across the rolling countryside of Morris County. The facility is considered one of the best public golf courses in New Jersey and has even been ranked as one of the top 75 public courses in the country. The Red-to-Gold Course has a hillier terrain than the other course, White-to-Blue, which has a more traditional design. It is the more challenging of the two courses with mature trees scattered throughout and uneven lies provided by the elevation changes, which also offer scenic views of the idyllic surroundings. The Red-to-Gold's seventh hole is the most difficult of all the 36 holes at Flanders. This tricky par 4 has trees flanking both sides and it is also subject to the prevailing winds.

Great course with history

I had a great round of golf with one of the employee of the course on his day off. What a great guy! The course is flat for most of the holes. The greens were slow on the day i played. The greens needed cutting and the fairways need some work. Lots of dry stops on the course. Around the greens on the course on the holes away from the club house needs top soil & seed. The tee box needs work. The bunks are filled with mud!! No sand to be found in the bunkers, its mud. The layout of the course is great, the coumpany was great, but the upkeep of the course is lacking. I hope they are planning to work on the upkeep off the course in the near future.

Thanks.

Ehhh, as a county course not that impressed.

Unfortunately the day I played there the greens on the white and blue courses had just been top dressed with sand, and yet we were still charged the full greens fees for our round. There are many browned out areas of the rough on every hole. There are dirt ruts all over the course as well. And the bunkers need a lot of tender loving care. Otherwise its unfortunately a less than memorable county golf course. Too bad, enjoyed this place so much in my 20's.

Everyone was nice from cart staff, pro shop, stater & bartender. Course was in great shape. Some fairways a little brown but just fine. A little pricey for non county residents but my three friends were locals and a great value for that price.

Very Nice Public Course

I enjoyed playing the blue-white course with my father. The staff was friendly and we were even able to get out a few minutes before our tee time. The greens were aerated and sandy, which is the only thing keeping this course from a 5* rating in my book. I'm sure as the season progresses, though, that the greens will be in better condition.

Just OK

course is right in front of you nothing special no real character. The gold I hear is more hilly but that 9 is paired up with the red which i was told is also flat and straightforward. Had a fun time but plenty of other courses in the area that are better.

Pretty good for winter golf

For a winter, course was in great shape. Minimum amenities due to construction.

The four nines are somewhat challenging, but very fair with the layout and noticeable improvements that have been made the last three years or so. The trees removed have been a nice improvement which will even make the courses nicer into the future. The team of employees is fantastic from the Director of golf Bill/Matt; starters & Rangers Ed, Lou, Fletch, Fred, Joe, etc.; pro shop staff Tyler, Lynne (sp?), Carl, Allen, etc. are very friendly as well as efficient; snack/tiki bar & beverage cart staff Maggie, Allie (college), Heather [who recently may have moved on] etc. all very polite and grounds crew team, respectful and friendly. The only suggestion I have is additional rakes for the sand traps. Keep up the good work.

It should meet Expectations

The course is inexpensive, it's decently maintained, and it's not a terrible walk. It's fun to play. Objectively speaking, compared to other options, the course is OK. I'd recommend it to someone, but probably not if they had to travel very far.
